FLOOD GATES by Katheryn Maddox Haddad
Book 5 in author Katheryn Maddox Haddad series, They Met Jesus, is our featured book today.
Do you know someone who is spiritually deaf, mute or blind? Jesus healed the deaf, mute and blind instantly.
Are you terrified of a confrontation you must have with someone powerful? Jesus had to face Satan from the cross, so was encouraged by Moses and Elijah.
Do you know someone who is loud and brash? James and John were that way, and become great men of God.
Do you feel your little bit of effort is nearly worthless? Jesus sent out seventy-two teachers and said he saw Satan fall during that time.
Do you know people who are pretending to be sinless? Jesus saved the adulterous woman from such accusers by making them admit they sin.
Are you accomplishing so much good, jealous people are attacking you to draw attention away from your good works? Jesus healed a blind man, then was attacked for doing it on the wrong day.
Are you being threatened with excommunication for believing something your congregation does not? That’s what the parents of the blind man were threatened with.
Are you so busy on church committees, you are drowning under them? Jesus told Martha to just spend her time sharing his word.
Have you lost a loved one in death? Jesus brought Lazarus back to life and said he would do that at the end of time for the godly.
Are church leaders condemning you out of jealousy? The chief priests did that to Jesus and just showed their true colors.
This series of eight novels—THEY MET JESUS—is dedicated to everyone who has ever doubted. It shows people who met Jesus in their stark humanness and curiosity, sometimes loving him, sometimes hating him, but never left the same. I was very careful about adding words of Jesus that are not in the Bible. At the end of each chapter are “Life Application Questions” for individual readers or book clubs, and ancient historical sources such as Josephus. At the end of each book are suggested readings for special occasions. COME, MEET JESUS ALL OVER AGAIN.
Katheryn began writing at age ten, and was “published” that same year in her local newspaper. She grew up in the cold north and now lives in Arizona where she do not have to shovel sunshine. She basks in 100-degree weather along with my palm trees, cacti, and a computer with most of the letters worn off.
With a bachelor’s degree in English, Bible and social science from Harding University and part of a master’s degree in Bible, including Greek, from the Harding Graduate School of Theology, she also has a master’s degree in management and human relations from Abilene University.
Her newspaper column appeared for several years in newspapers in Texas and North Carolina ~ Little Known Facts About the Bible ~ and she has written for numerous Christian publications.
She spends half her day writing, and the other half teaching English over the internet worldwide using the Bible as text book. She is a member of Christian Writers of the West and is also an energetic public speaker.
